tv Right This Minute FOX May 31, 2013 9:30am-10:01am PDT
hi, everybody, i'm beth troutman, we've been searching the web and we have the best videos of the day "right this minute". a pilot faces a worse-case scenario after the engine cuts out. >> now he's got to land this thing. >> the view from the cockpit as he braces for impact. >> if it had not been for the good samaritan outside that elevator -- >> fluffy would have been gone. >> how a pug came within a hair of disaster. >> remember that mercedes crushed by a bulldozer, well -- >> i have an update for you all.
>> the crews that led us to the real story. >> plus an irishman's stunt turns into a one-two punch. and what happens when a guy in a river heads straight for a tree? >> look what he's able to do with this boat. i think probably the worst sound you could hear as a pilot behind the controls of a plane is the sound of your engine turning off. that's what happened to this guy in brazil. he's in a small cessna plane. now he has to land this thing. all you're hearing is the air rushing past this plane as he's trying to look for a nice place to land. he gets closer to the ground. people on youtube asked him why he didn't choose to land on the road. this was a small tree that was next to one of the roads. he didn't want to take out one of his wings. here he is setting things down in the field.
>> smooth. >> perfect. what's the problem? >> it looks like he's done this before. grabs on to the dash. as he's landing, yeah, thumbs up. >> look who he gives the thumbs up to, a student. he's an instructor. this was during a lesson. imagine this. here is a student. this is your flying lesson. he said he high-fived the student because the student remained calm. tried to help as best he could. also he was instrumental in landing. so maybe an impromptu lesson on how to land your plane if the engine fails. >> i would rather figure it out with the pilot in the set next to me than on my own. >> i'd rather figure it out on a simulator. ♪ >> a cute little pug owes his life to a question-thinking
bystander. check this video out. security cameras outside some elevators. you can see the woman walk into the elevator with her pug. before the doors close, the pug runs out. there he goes. >> oh. >> the pug starts to rise up with the elevator. the guy standing there in the hooded shirt is able to unleash thing because before he gets strangled. >> good thing that guy was there. what if he wasn't there? >> fluffy would have been gone. >> just a quick-thinking rescue. at first it doesn't look like the guy is considering that that could happen. he's pushing the button on the wall thinking the doors will open back up. no. instantly the dog is off his feet. >> did he pull the leash out of the elevator or unhooked it from the harness? >> it's hard to tell. it looks like either the leash broke or he was able to unhook it. in any way, there was no pressure put on the dog's
throat, other than just being pulled up. >> i bet that lady was freaking out. could you imagine her ride up? >> the longest elevator ride of her life. >> i have to warn you, the video we're about to watch is very shocking and very difficult to wat watch, but the story behind it is even more shocking. this is outside the home that's a construction for this businessman that you see getting out of the car. that's oscar alberto ponyo. he's an argentinean businessman. at that time you see him walking around the car. a couple of men in a motorcycle walk up. before you know, it one of them points his gun. the gun malfunctions, but there is a second hitman on that motorcycle. he comes up, they're both shooting at him. he falls to the ground. one of the hitman takes out a knife and stabs him, leaving him
laying on the ground. believing that he is dead. the hitmen get back on their motorcycle, they drive away. a few minutes later you see two workers from this home come out. they end up calling the ambulance and emergency services that do take the business man to the hospital. believe it or not, he survived this attack. the investigation reveals that this hit had been ordered by a police officer in that city. apparently the whole thing was because of a business deal between this businessman and the police officer that ended up going bad. there was a judicial case, believe that's what made the police officer order the hit against the dizzinessman. doct businessman. yesterday he did end up
suffering a heart attack, and he passed away. >> that's scary. >> earlier this week i brought you guys this video. you remember? we see an excavator just bulldoze over a white mercedes, behind what looks like a man being interviewed. reports said that excavator was being driven by an employee who had a beef with his boss. apparently that mercedes was the boss's car. remember this story? >> yeah. it's fake, right? >> i do have an update for you all. this is fake. this was a viral video marketing campaign for an insurance agency in switzerland called alliance 24. they put this together. >> it's all part of a campaign. >> did we all fall for it? >> i think we kind of had some suspicions. >> it's so nicely shot.
it's not like i'm watching a movie. >> you're right. it was very well set up. to show you how well set up it was, we foun athe scenes video. one of the coolest parts of this campaign, they hollowed out the mercedes before they did the crush, crush part. >> it did fold quickly. when i watched it i was like where did the engine go? >> it was like an empty tin can. >> after the car was crunched they put it in a city swear qua switzerland. we want to know what you think go to our facebook page, fashou the construction site pay, or the owner of the mercedes.

posted the pictures on facebook. that's how she was able to reconnect photos of this newborn baby girl and her family again. >> wow, the internet, man. >> floored. >> if they never saw the pictures, how do they know? you look at that one dude's shirt, the blue and white shirt. you see that, you know there's a match. >> some photos were of the baby, but there were photos in there with her dad, the dog. there were enough recognizable elements. >> i can't believe the film was still able to be developed. >> that's a lot of work for a stranger to go to. try to get these photos back to somebody. good deed. >> good thing that dude is wearing the pineapple shirt that day.
